Successful graduates will get to work as Jameson brand ambassadors and avail of a training and development programme, with career progression opportunities and work in one of 35 international markets.
Programme lead Sinéad D’Arcy said the programme was first launched in 1991. Many of the graduates have remained within the wider network and some have gone on to hold leadership roles in Irish Distillers domestically and Pernod Ricard globally. “We look for creative, innovative, self-starters with an entrepreneurial mindset,” D’Arcy added.
“We want graduates who are committed to getting the job done, but who don’t take themselves too seriously. We call this ‘serious character’. The programme applies a 70/20/10 approach to graduate development; 70 per cent on the job learning; 20 per cent learning through feedback and reflection and 10 percent formal learning.”
